Stanthorpe is set to see a slice of history roll into town at the end of the month, with 30 Ford T Model cars on exhibition for one day only.

The T Model Owners Club of Queensland will be showcasing 30 Ford T Model cars on Saturday 24 July from 8:30am to 11:30am at Pierpoint Motors on Maryland Street in Stanthorpe.

The Ford T Model is widely credited as the car that popularised automobile travel due to it being marketed towards the middle class at a relatively affordable price, and remains one of the most sold cars in history.

Admission is free, and attendees can vote for their favourite vehicle to be awarded people’s choice.

There will be a coffee van and sausage sizzle on the day, with roughly 60 people from The T Model Owners Club of Queensland set to attend.

Ian Schmidt, a member of the club who has a Ford T Model workshop in Stanthorpe, is organising the event.

The event is sponsored by Pierpoint Motors, M&D AutoParts, Pink Poppies, Top Beat Entertainment, and Injule Property Management.
